As some of you may be aware, earlier this morning, we experienced multiple spam attacks in our Open Mic section. We took every action available to us to stop and further prevent them from happening again. The attacks seem to have subsided for the time being and we are closely monitoring the forums.
We are working with our platform partner to create a better solution for spam attacks. We are not alone in experiencing these issues, as other Communities that use the same platform are experiencing an overall increase in spamming over the last few months. It's also not just our platform, spamming is increasing throughout many Communities on the Internet.
We would like to thank all of you for your patience this morning as well as your continued patience as we work to resolve this issue as quickly as possible moving forward.
